This is the week, 35 years ago that Roger Patterson, rodeo rider, songwriter, and Bigfoot hunter, died. Thirty-five years! How time flies. During the next twelve months you will find your calendar filled with anniversaries that hit close to home, if you are interested in cryptids and other "strange things" that happen all the time. This year is the 400th anniversary of the founding of Virginia’s Jamestown colony and is (according to various media) the biggest milestone of the year in the United States of America. Intriguingly, 2007 will see the publication of many books about Virginia, including Weird Virginia. [...]

How about Monster’s Choice Scottish Whiskey, here from the gift shops near Loch Ness, for those people secure enough in their cryptozoology to know that most of the Nessie eyewitnesses are not drinking? 2.

Off to the Boston area for a little trip down memory lane. Fox 25 News is interviewing me for a Halloween feature on the Dover Demon.

The drawings by the eyewitnesses and the encounter itself have traveled down through the years as vivid images that appear to well up the closer we get to Halloween every year.
